WASHINGTON A suspected Al Qaeda organizer once called "the highest value detainee" at Guantanamo Bay was ordered released by a federal judge in an order issued Monday.
Mohamedou Ould Slahi was accused in the 9/11 Commission report of helping recruit Mohammed Atta and other members of the Al Qaeda cell in Hamburg, Germany, that took part in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Military prosecutors suspected Slahi of links to other Al Qaeda operations, and considered seeking the death penalty against him while preparing possible charges in 2003 and 2004.

One nightmare after another.
And you all are banking on our court system to repeal the health bill ??? LOL
Everyone at Gitmo should of been shot by firing squad before Bush left office, eventually they will all walk free because of liberals.
Did this “judge” release them to his or her neighborhood? Will the miscreant be ticketed on the next flight the judge’s family takes? What a total loser.
This was a lower court decision.
tag before release, we hope
hopefully there’s a predator in his future
judge was appointed by Clinton
U.S. District Judge James Robertson was appointed by Bill Clinton.
Thank obamer and holder for their acts of wisdom in protecting the American people.
New York must have sighed with relief....
how hard do you suppose holder’s justice department fought to prevent the release of the president’s muslim brother?
Per Foxnews, all info gained from him is inadmissible because they didn’t issue him pillows while getting it (my paraphrasing of course).
But that is the gist of it.
Clinton appointment..is anyone surprised?
He has done this before and is well known for his leftist leanings and tireless work for terrorists. My guess is that Obama’s justice department will not fight this or if they do for political reasons...they will not fight to win.
Anyone out there trust your government?
>>Everyone at Gitmo should of been shot by firing squad before Bush left office, eventually they will all walk free because of liberals.
Another aspect of Bush’s “legacy”. There should have been immediate military tribunals followed by the hanging of illegal combatants. Instead, we get this.
We had the guts to do it in WWII, so the precedent was there.
